I can't really answer your question, because i  don't know the market
well enough and i don't have good comparisons of Perl and Java in
terms of performance, which Dov cited as a problem.

However i am curious about the "want to switch" part.

Are there companies that want to switch from Java / C++ / .NET to
Perl? You don't have to name names if it's a secret, but can you
describe their considerations? Why are they considering switching?

Also, what do you mean by *good* Perl programmers?
